A new partnership has formed to save two abandoned properties in Lynchburg, Virginia, from being demolished. Since demolition has been the answer for many abandoned structures in this area, local advocates are afraid that this practice will continue to destroy the community’s vitality and historical legacy. The partnership includes Fifth Street CDC, Lynchburg Neighborhood Development Foundation, and the city’s Community Development Department. Partners will work out funding and logistical plans for stabilizing the buildings.
